Entry term(s) enfermedad de Morvan
hidrosiringomielia
Scope note: Cavidades longitudinales de la médula espinal, con mayor frecuencia en la región cervical, que pueden extenderse por múltiples niveles espinales. Las cavidades están recubiertas por tejido gliogenoso denso y pueden asociarse a NEOPLASIAS DE LA MÉDULA ESPINAL, lesiones traumáticas de la médula espinal y malformaciones vasculares. La siringomielia se caracteriza clínicamente por dolor y PARESTESIA, atrofia muscular de las manos y analgesia con termoanestesia de las manos y brazos, pero con preservación de la sensibilidad táctil (disociación sensorial). También puede desarrollarse espasticidad de las extremidades inferiores e incontinencia. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1269)

Scope note: Longitudinal cavities in the spinal cord, most often in the cervical region, which may extend for multiple spinal levels. The cavities are lined by dense, gliogenous tissue and may be associated with SPINAL CORD NEOPLASMS; spinal cord traumatic injuries; and vascular malformations. Syringomyelia is marked clinically by pain and PARESTHESIA, muscular atrophy of the hands, and analgesia with thermoanesthesia of the hands and arms, but with the tactile sense preserved (sensory dissociation). Lower extremity spasticity and incontinence may also develop. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1269)
